Hello Scott,

I have an MLton based log file analyzer as well.  Specifically IBM
WebSphere and Log4J styled output.  Regex based to tokenize the entries,
skip white noise ...

Similar entries are "folded" into one using a ratio metric based on the
Levenshtein Distance between two messages modulo white noise.  Also uses
a small HTML emitter library structured along the lines of MLton's
Layout module.  And yes it is fast.

I'd be interested in a log file utility code swap so I can steal all
your good stuff.  Contact me off list.
